Dolphins spotted from a RIB by the Nab Tower

Just had a call from one of 7.8 Ballistic RIB (Rigid inflatable boat) owners, He was very excited because he says that he and his family got to play with 10 dolphins for over an hour.

The RIB trip started from the hard at Itchenor, West Sussex in Chichester harbour and then out across the Chichester Bar out of the Eastern Solent to the Nab tower. The Nab Tower for those of you that don’t know is and interesting place to visit in itself.

Here’s and extract that I found on the Web about the Nab Tower: Click here for the web site

“This curious looking object a few miles to the South East of Bembridge started life during the First World War as part of an anti-submarine defence system. During 1916 the British Admiralty, alarmed by the losses of allied merchant shipping to German U-boats designed four or six towers that were to be built and positioned in the Straits of Dover. They would be linked together with steel nets and armed with two 4″ guns. However when the Armistice was signed in 1918 only one of the planned towers was anywhere near completion. The others were dismantled but what was to be done with this 92 foot tall metal cylinder (costing one million pounds sterling, in those days), sitting on its raft of concrete?”

It was a great surprise to see not just one dolphin but a whole school, even some babies. Its amazing what you can see and do in a RIB and great when you get an experience like this.
